Gathering for beginners

  • Jul 9, 2008 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

WATCH OUT! Only if: - you love traveling, - you love knowing people from other countries, - you love fun, - you love challenges, - you like adventures, - you love having new friends, - you don't know any Spanish or you have a basic vocabulary.
WHAT DO WE DO? We have monthly meetings for beginners in DC, a second one in Virginia, and a third one in Maryland with the idea of motivating you to make progress practicing: - at home, - or riding the Metro, - or reading and practicing before going to sleep. Yes! When you love what you do, you want more and more! That will be your case if you join us. Feel absolutely free to register also at
The Maryland Spanish Language Meetup Group and at
The Virginia Spanish Language meetup group.
HOW DO WE DO IT? A native Spanish speaker will guide you through the process of development of your conversational skills in Spanish. BELIEVE IT OR NOT: YOU WILL START SPEAKING FROM THE VERY BEGINNING! That's what we love! That's what we do. We hope to see you there! Please keep in mind that we must order something to support our venue. Questions: Evelyn[masked]
Payment in advance: The group realized that it's very difficult, if not sometimes impossible, to plan an event if members don't commit. So the members of the group decided to charge for the meetings in advance. This way a person that can not attend won't take a place of somebody who really wants to participate.
Why? When we charge more than $ 0.50 for an event it's because we are hiring a professional native speaker to be in charge of the meeting. There is never, ever, a profit for the organizer!
How to pay: You can submit payment via Paypal or by calling[masked] (Evelyn) and pay with your credit card.
I don't have a Paypal account. Can I pay by Paypal anyway?: YES, you can! Click on the Paypal botton and pay with your credit card.
How much: Paying on site:
$7. Paying by Paypal: $5
How to RSVP: Please mark your reservation here as YES only if you have already paid for the event. If you don't pay in advance, you might get a space at the meeting, but we can not assure that. We reserve the right to delete any reservation of a member who did not pay in advance.
Refund: If you ask the organizer of the meetup by email for a refund up to 8 days before the meeting, you'll get a full refund. Since we must plan in advance, 7 days before the meeting or less no refunds are possible, regardless of attendance or not. NO EXCEPTIONS! ¡Muchas gracias!
Same day of the event Paypal payment not valid: Please don't pay by Paypal the same day of the event, since that payment won't be valid. Thank you for your understanding. Think that organizing and planning is not an easy matter. We need your support to help us continue with this service. Please try to be always willing to help ??. Muchas gracias!
